Vollswagen has re-introduced the Match trim level to its Polo range, replacing the SE and Moda trims and offering £650 worth of extra equipment for a £215 lower price.

The new Polo Match starts from £11,300 on the road, yet comes with 15-inch ‘Castille’ alloy wheels, front fog lights, heat-insulating tinted rear windows, manual air conditioning, an upgraded CD player with iPod connectivity, multifunction computer and MDI (Multi Device Interface).  The Match also gets electric windows and a comfort pack, incorporating remote central locking and electrically adjustable exterior mirrors.

It will be available as both a three and five door and with three engine choices — two petrol and a diesel.  The entry level three cylinder 1.2 litre petrol producines 60PS, good for 98mph, 0-62mph in 16.1, 51.4mpg and CO2 of 128g/km.  Top petrol engine and most powerful option is the four cylinder 1.4 litre with 85PS, giving a top speed of 110mph, 0-62mph in usefully swifter 11.9 seconds, 47.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 139g/km.  Diesel lovers get a 1.2 litre engine with 75PS, a 105mph top speed, 0-62mph dash covered in 13.9 seconds, but 72.4mph and CO2 levels of just 103g/km (not quite enough to qualify for zero VED beyond the first year).  All are fitted with a five speed manual transmission as standard,  but a seven speed DSG (dual clutch) option is available with the 1.4 litre petrol engine.

The Polo Match is on sale right now, but it’s not the cheapest way into a Polo, as the entry level Polo S remains in the range with the same three cylinder 1.2 litre petrol engine priced at just £9,995.
